    Gonzalez writing is a lesson on theater every time you read him. His work has a way to both have empathy for its characters but no time to forgive them for their actions. The way this play builds backwards, giving us glimpses of the puzzle that humanity is, till we get the whole picture is nothing short of brilliant. He makes an exploration about friendship and romance feel like a thriller, because ultimately every love story kind of is. Franky just unlock how to present that.

    Gonzalez’s play achingly traces the creation and disillusion of a love triangle, but not in that order, telling a story scene by scene in reverse chronological order. He takes us back and back, peeling away the layers of deceit and unhappiness to get to the original sin of this doomed relationship— the idea that you can wish a romantic partnership into reality based on an idea. It’s a well-crafted romantic mystery and one I highly recommend.

    A beautiful and heart-stopping anatomy of both friendship, marriage and collaboration. It’s spare and unsparing. Gonzalez pays homage to a play that came before but has his own voice in the subject of betrayal, art and the nuances of love. A layered play which gives so much to all the artists involved.
